The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) continued to maintain its winning spree in elections to urban local bodies (ULBs) after its thumping performance in the recent general elections. The results of the elections to the Balangir and Titilagarh ULBs held on Tuesday were declared on Wednesday.
In the Balangir Municipality polls, out of the total 21 wards the BJD won in 15 and the Congress in four while the BJP and an Independent candidate won in one each. There was some tense moment as both Annapurna Swain of the Congress and Mamatarani Jena of the BJD in Ward-8 got an equal number of votes of 665 each. As per the rule, a draw was conducted and Mamatarani Jena came out as the lucky winner.
In the Titilagarh Municipality, the BJD bagged as many as 14 out of the 15 wards and the Congress won the remaining one. "We are happy that people of Balangir have reposed their faith in the BJD once again. We will work for development of drinking water supply, sewerage and roads in the municipalities," said Balangir MP and BJD district president Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo.
